Cheering for Statistics!

In Math, fourth graders are cheering about statistics.  For the state assessments, the students need to know how to find the maximum, minimum, mode, range, mean and median of a set of numbers.  To help the students remember what each word means, they are learning six cheers. Ask a 4th grader to give you a cheer for statistics!  

Maximum-The HIGH, HIGH, HIGHEST number

Minimum-The LOW, LOW, LOWEST number

Mode-The one you find the most

Range-You take the HIGH, HIGH, HIGHEST number and subtract the LOW, LOW, LOWEST number

Mean-Add to find the sum, count those numbers, divide

Median-The one in the middle –XXXXXX-BOOM!
